We had a lovely meal as a family and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Beth was our server and she was lovely. Will definitely be returning at some point!
Thank you so much - I'll pass your comments onto Beth!
Thank you for a lovely afternoon tea.
And thank you for the lovely review!
The service on the day we visited was slow. The sandwiches were nothing special, one just had a thin smear of some sort of paste. The seats of the chairs at our table were stained which was off-putting. I’ve had much better high teas at other places in Manchester. I wouldn’t go back.
Lovely afternoon tea with friends. Great atmosphere, good service, tasty sandwiches and cakes. Would highly recommend.
Thank you so much!
Fantastic place. Can't wait to go back. 😊
Fabulous breakfast and great service
The afternoon tea was delicious! The staff are very friendly. I would love to eat in the Enchanted Forest next time. 🙂
Thought it was a really lovely experience
Fabulous afternoon,stuff were so helpful and friendly, made us feel quiet special and nothing was to much trouble x Thankhou
Lovely to hear you enjoyed your visit
Love the new place, very friendly staff and great food . Think it’s a shame that there is no alternative to tea/ coffee included in the price of an afternoon tea , but will come back as love it here.
I will pass your feedback onto management - Glad to hear you enjoyed your visit!
Excellent service from john
Thought the two hour time slot would be a little bit of a pressure, but the staff didn’t make it feel pressured and we actually left ten minutes before the two hours anyway. Plenty of time for a fabulous brunch and a cheeky lunchtime cocktail! Definitely recommend.
Delightful quirky atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff. delicious food and fabulous decor.
Lovely review! Thank you
Lovely new location, same great food and service.
Best tea room in Manchester. Easy to find. Queens tea is the best. Optimal to celebrate birthdays. Cakes are really fresh and good. The place just moved few meters to accommodate more people but still great.
Thank you for the wonderful review!
We once again had a fabulous experience in the new building in Manchester. The decorations in the new building are fantastic, it really sets the place off. The atmosphere is brilliant and the staff were great and made us feel very welcome. We were allowed to dress the area for our hen party, and we fully enjoyed out time in Richmond Tea Rooms. Once again many thanks to you all.
We had a lovely afternoon, my friend and our daughters really enjoyed it. The surroundings were lovely, and as were all the staff.We will come again.
Thank you so much!
Lovely place, good table service especially for our group of 24. I did think that the sandwiches were a bit plain and we didn’t get a choice of brown or white bread. Other than that it was lovely.
Thank you for your review!
The staff are lovely and the food is amazing! A gorgeous experience
Adele the waitress was wonderful and chatted lots. The afternoon tea I ordered arrived with the wrong sandwich’s and the scones were very doughy and thought the little cakes very bland. Been lots before and thoroughly enjoyed it this time will be my last sadly.
A lovely friendly place,great food & great staff in a lovely quirky setting 😊
I was very anxious whether this event would go smoothly as I arranged it for colleagues. But it went amazing thanks to your staff called John, he made sure we needed everything and was very attentive The new decor is beautiful too. Will be coming back again with my colleagues
We all had a fabulous afternoon, everybody commented on how nice the food was and I love the new premises.
Really enjoyed our time on Sunday afternoon it was booked for my friends baby shower. Food was nice, service was good but I was disappointed at the end when I went to the toilets which were unisex which is fine except three of the toilets had urine all over the seats which wasn't nice!
Love this place. Great service [Tom the waiter is amazing]. Fab decor and cakes to die for.
